Location: New York, NY
Shape: Egg
Duration:5 min
For five minutes around midnight of 28 june we watched a silent slow-moving well-lit disc-shaped object moving from north to east..

The craft was moving very very slowly from the north to the east. at first it appeared as if it had the shape of a dirigible (a horizontal oval balloon tapering towards the left). it was well lit with a white light. hence its framework was clearly visible and its outline was well-defined. it must have been of the same size as a large aeroplane. it had a single red light at the centre of its base.

It must have been at a low height because an aeroplane that appeared at the same time was flying at a much geater height. the aeroplane disappeared quickly. the ufo was still moving slowly behind some trees in our neighbourhood (green drive, roslyn, nassau county, ny) and took about two minutes to reappear from behind them. it then dipped downwards and then it became clear that its shape was actually round with a bulging centre as if two shallow bowls had been joined together rim to rim. in a minute or so it disappeared. we did not hear any sound throughout this time.

The three of us who watched this craft are : 1. civil engineer, 63 years, male. 2. school teacher, 58, female. 3. housewife, 58. we are all from india on a visit to the usa.
